They’re all reasons why Microsoft News has you covered this election season. Election Day 2018 is here, the stakes are stratosphere-high, and we’ve got all the news, analysis and viewpoints you need, when and where you need them.

Microsoft has been in the news business for nearly a quarter-century. Earlier this year we relaunched as Microsoft News – the engine that powers sites like MSN.com, and our redesigned Microsoft News app for iOS and Android. Microsoft News also fuels news coverage for Microsoft Edge, our News app for Windows 10, Skype, Xbox and Outlook.com.

From the early days of MSN to the present, our editors have taken pride in our comprehensive election coverage. This year marks our best yet.

Microsoft News provides coverage from the best publishers in the business. Our partners for politics coverage include The Washington Post, Politico, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, The New York Times, The National Review, The Hill, CNN, The Washington Examiner, USA Today, NBC News, The Federalist, The Daily Caller, CBS News and dozens more, including hundreds of local newspapers and broadcast stations. Our team of editors works its way through thousands of politics stories each day, bringing you the most important news from journalists worldwide and opinion from diverse points of view across the political spectrum. From fast breaking news coverage to insightful analysis content to provocative opinion pieces to political cartoons, you can find every angle represented at Microsoft News.

Through the election, we’ve brought you exclusive features like “State of the Race,” a weekly midterms roundup from The Hill running every Friday. With partners like USA Today, we have reporters covering developments in every state. In partnership with Bing News, we’ve helped you get registered to vote, and track how your state voted in earlier contests.

Tonight, we’ll feature results updating in real-time with the latest on the balance of power in Congress and the latest state-by-state results. We’ll offer live video coverage from major networks, alongside the best national reporting and analysis, and reactions from around the world.

Our news editors have more than 100 years of collective experience in covering major elections and we will work with sophisticated technology to help present the best election coverage in the business. We don’t do “fake news.” We don’t take sides.

We’re bringing you the facts and why they’re important to you. For the important midterm elections and beyond, you can count on Microsoft News for not only the breaking stories and facts, but the perspectives, opinions and analysis you need.
